The average woman will have approximately 500 periods in her lifetime[i] lasting anywhere between 2 and 7 days[ii]. That’s potentially a whopping 3,500 days or 9 and ½ years spent dealing with Mother Nature’s monthly call! If that’s not enough to see you reaching for the nearest chocolate bar for comfort then what is!


But as much as chocolate and the lure of the sofa might be overwhelming it’s no way to spend potentially 9 years of your life! So, just because we may be lacking a little in energy and feeling tired it shouldn’t stop us getting out there and making the most of life.


A healthy and balanced diet might be just the ticket to help maintain normal energy levels during periods. An essential mineral for carrying oxygen around the body, and so helping energy levels, is iron. So, if you’re not getting enough iron from your diet alone why not keep a sachet of SPATONE liquid iron in your handbag.


SPATONE contains Spatone iron rich water sourced from the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia National Park – which has been scientifically proven to help top up your iron levels whilst causing fewer of the unpleasant side effects often experienced with conventional iron food supplements[iii]. Generally, iron is a very difficult mineral for the body to absorb however, the iron naturally present in SPATONE  has been shown to be easily absorbed, with an average of 40% bioavailability[iv], compared to 5- 20% from food and other iron supplements. The additional Vitamin C in SPATONE Apple can help increase iron absorption to help ensure sufficient dietary intake of iron for active people. Vitamin C also contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system as well as contributing to a normal energy yielding metabolism and a reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

SPATONE is priced at £8.75 for 28 sachets (4 weeks supply) and SPATONE Apple is priced at £10.55 for 28 sachets (4 weeks supply). Sachets can easily be popped into your handbag or gym bag making SPATONE the most convenient iron food supplement available. Available from Boots, Holland & Barratt and all good independent health food and pharmacy stores.
